Will a football pan work instead of an egg pan? I just bought the football pan the other day. Thanks!

Can the football pan be used? Can someone post pics that has used the football pan?

Thank you, MrsMissey

I was practicing today, I used the football pan and the mini wonder mold, also instead of buttercream I used whip cream because my family don't like buttercream. Hopefully the next one will look much better.

Thankyou MrsMissy for this. I just made my first turkey cake tonight. I used chocolate for the 9x13 and white cake for the egg pan. That way everyone gets white and dark "meat" LOL. I also used rice crispy treats to form the bones in the drum sticks. That way its all edible and I don't have to worry about getting any pieces back at the end of it all. I'll try to post a pic later, but I wanted to say thanks.

Been wanting to make this since I saw it 3 years ago. Made one yesterday with the football pan. Couldn't seem to get the shape right. My husband said I should have put the wider end at the "stuffing" end. I think next time I will make it with the egg pan.
MrsMissy have you gotten a "formula" for the "wet look" yet. I can't seem to get it right, it's either too thin or too thick. Thanks for the tutorial, you made it clear and simple.

I'm such a "visual" type, I need to SEE instructions. icon_eek.gif It would be so much fun to see a video of you making it..... "in your spare time of course!!"
I know ...... ha ha ha. NO spare time for you. Thank you for the providing the recipe/instructions. ps --- ??? re the drumsticks "hollow dowels", what do they look like, they seem so much bigger than the dowels I have seen in the stores. I would appreciate it if you could provide a link to their photo.

I just found this thread (thank Doug!) and I'm so grateful someone did a tutorial on this turkey cake -- I've always wondered how they were done. Thanks for posting! icon_biggrin.gif

I just wanted to add my thanks to this post. I was able to make my turkey cake this past Thanksgiving thanks to all the great instructions here on CC. I ended up using a 9 inch heart pan for the top because I didn't have the football or egg pan and I think it worked pretty well.

For anyone interested, I took step by step pictures as I did my cake. They're posted here

Thanks again.

Thank you so much for the instructions! I may try one of these this year. Good reason to get my airbrush!

Here is the turkey cake we made last year. The legs and wings are made from brownies smushed up like cake balls and then formed into the shapes. The stuffing is white cake torn up with caramel sauce for the gravy.
